You step back to examine your surroundings.
From the outside, it’s seen as a scary place. Big, immense, full of crime. It’s seen as dirty, crowded and full of pigeons. And in fairness, it is. It can be overwhelming to those who’ve never set foot in a city - and of course, it would be. It is rainy and stuffy all at once. It is dense and heaving and wildly expensive.

There is always something to do, someone to see, something going on.

Often seen as grey, slabbed in concrete, glass and steel. It’s more than that. Londinium. As they called it when the Romans officially made it a city. The Big Smoke. Teething with curious architecture, from Roman and Tudor to Victorian and now the modern skyscrapers in the east. Rich with maze-like cobbled streets. Even after 26 years of living here, I am always finding new places. All you have to do is take two lefts and a right, maybe two rights and then a final left and you’ll end up somewhere completely new. Some tiny Jack-The-Ripper style alleyway opening up in cavernous courtyards with food stalls and shops and coffee and drinks. I will never get bored of this city. I will never get bored of the views, the people, the bustle. It’s not just that everywhere is within walking distance, despite the immensity of the city, it’s that walking from place to place is beautiful.
